Geisinger Health System Manager of Revenue Management Professional Operations Brian Babilon, a 2019 winner, said, “The MAP Award for Geisinger is really a big validation that all the hard work and all the process improvements we put in, are really are making a difference. Being validated as one of the top performing healthcare facilities… makes [employees] step back for a bit and see what they are doing and how it makes a difference.”
